of the book

qChapter 2 reviews some basic linear algebra and matrix facts.

qChapter 3 reviews system theoretical concepts: controllability,
observability, stabilizability, detectability, pole placement, observer
theory, system poles and zeros, and state space realizations.

qChapter 4 introduces the *H**2 *and *H**¥** *spaces. State space methods for computing real
rational *H**2 *and *H**¥* transfer matrix norms are
presented.
